In honor of Earth Day later this month, we are sharing this photo from the U.S. Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) of an abundant evening market in Msimba, Tanzania, powered by solar lights, which enables members of the community to shop and sell their goods after the workday is over. The Millennium Challenge Corporation is investing in improving the reliability of electricity in rural and urban areas, including in communities who are accessing electricity for the first time.

Like OPIC, MCC supports the Obama Administration’s Feed the Future global hunger and food security initiative, which helps countries transform their own agricultural sectors so they can produce enough food for their growing populations.
